Hey Diddly Ho Neighbours!

What a week!

Wow, my friend Ashley got her lungs, and I have joined the local Gym. I am so excited to get back into training, you have no idea. I miss my gym, it has been so long since I was there, that I can only imagine the state of health I am in now. As part of post transplant treatment, we are required to get physical, and do activities to keep our cardiovascular system up, and obviously keep our lungs in shape.

The gym I joined is amazing. Jason, the owner, is so awesome. he's got some great information on health and stuff that he's got his own blog, you should all check it out and join his blog. I read it for the first time today, and i was amazed. It's surprising what little you know until you learn. No I am not being paid to talk about this blog, or am I benefiting, well I guess I am benefiting because i am learning how to keep better care of my health through his blog, so yeah I am benefiting. And I want all of you to benefit too. What's the harm in that, right?

Here is his link, if you don't like it, then you don't like it, I just thought I would share with you, the lessons I am learning.

Moving on....

My health is amazing, still breathing easy after 4 months, well almost. I still can't believe that I got this amazing gift. I was featured in the local paper these past few weeks, one for me transplant experience, and the other for the GREAT STRIDES walk to help fund CF research. I was amazing. The turnout was fantastic, and I couldn't have asked for a better day. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping. Not to mention the Loons, and Mallards. I'll post pictures of the walk when i get a chance. What a great day for CF research. Our little Community here in Cornwall, raised about $16,000 for CF research, not that bad for the fourth annual. Maybe now people will come out when they hear about it. Gotta love Facebook. I know I put it out there a few times. It was a great turnout, maybe about 100 people showed up.

Way to go Cornwall. Thanks for your continued support in CF research. bless the families who have just been diagnosed with CF, and those who continue to struggle with this illness. I will educate and advocate for CF until the day I die. My whole family was there, some of my old nurses, all my great Friends and what's really awesome is that Jesse Winchester, an Ottawa Senators player, and local from Long Sault, (about 5 minutes from Cornwall) came out to support the cause. Thanks Jesse, you made a lot of kids happy on Sunday.

Well, that's about it for now, I'll keep you posted as time goes by. My life is getting pretty routine. As I keep going to the gym, I will post how things are going. I have to lose some weight. I never thought I would say those words, but by golly I have, and I must. Wish me luck!

Cheers
